Very nice motel, quiet, close to everything in Helen, right on the river, and very family Friendly.
Very satisfied with my stay and will certainly will stay there again.
The Owner Mark makes sure your room is satisfactory and that you are pleased with your stay.
A+ rating.
Even caught some rainbow trout on the edge of his property!

The Riverbend Motel and Cabins is a wonderful place.
The rooms were recently remodeled and had hardwood floors, very clean and nice!
We loved the view of the river, the management were very professional and friendly, making sure that our stay was very enjoyable, We will differently be staying here each time we visit Helen!

Room Tip: Ask for a room that overlooks the river, or stay in one of the wonderful cabins!

Riverbend is the perfect place to stay for the entire family! It is located on the river and only a few blocks for main street Helen! Kids can throw rocks and swim in river while parents sit and swing! Teens will love it because the walk to Helen is only a few blocks away! The room was very clean and comfortable! We will stay there time and time again!

Our family had a fantastic stay at Riverbend! Mark was extremely helpful in making our first visit to Helen one of our best family vacations ever. The location beside the river is superb. We tubed with the Cool Springs Company and were able to use the waterslide right across Riverbend all day yesterday. That convenience and Mark's hospitality made our trip so memorable. It will not be our last!

My family and I had a great stay at Riverbend. The location was very convenient to Downtown Helen, and Mark was wonderful at suggesting places to dine. The rooms were also clean. We will definitely be back.

We had a wonderful stay at the Riverbend motel and cabins in Helen Georgia. It was our first trip to helen. Mark gave us coupons and told us which restaurants were the best. The room was absolutly beautiful with a magnificent view of the river. It was such a quiet relaxing getaway. We plan to return often. The Riverbend motel is also pet friendly, even when we asked to bring three dogs along.
